lightsAvista is exploring replacing existing street light bulbs with brighter, high-efficiency bulbs. Remember that our street lights are maintained by Avista, but we pay the electricity bills. If you notice a street light out, the number for Avista Customer Service is: 800-227-9187. There is also a form available on their website.

Reminder: homeowner address lights are to be maintained. Several are dark throughout the neighborhood. Think of this as a safety issue…

“Grab” 2016-04-24 at 10.15.34 AMWe have scheduled a River Run neighborhood Spring Fling on Saturday, May 14, from 12 noon to 4 p.m. We will provide hot dogs, grill space, condiments, tableware and tables. The rest is a potluck. Please bring whatever else you would like to grill and/or drink and maybe something to share. The goal is to meet your HOA Board and some of your neighbors. We also wanted to get the community involved in:

  • Sprucing up the play areas with new bark
  • Weeding play areas
  • Cleaning up debris from tree and trail trimmings. (We will provide garbage bags for you to drag home for your green bin…)

If you choose to help, please bring a shovel, rake and/or garden gloves. The park trees will be trimmed, the bark will be delivered and the pathway will be edged prior to the event.

“Grab” 2016-04-24 at 10.08.14 AMSeveral neighbors have expressed concern about speeding in the River Run neighborhood and disregard for traffic rules. Some of your neighbors have been involved in a “Traffic Calming Study” with the City of Spokane for our neighborhood. Grant money through the West Central Neighborhood Council is available for this, but it will be a long process. In the meantime, please observe traffic laws already in place: the speed limit is 25 mph unless otherwise marked, all intersections in River Run are “uncontrolled” and when a school bus is loading and unloading, you must stop.

Below is our projected budget for 2016. We have increased projections for Mowing/Landscaping, Irrigation and Maintenance. All other expenses should remain the same as 2015.
